We wish him all the best in the future."

In fact it is an exploration portfolio that would be the envy of many of the majors. My vision for Canadian Gold Hunter is to build the Company into an international, multi-commodity exploration vehicle - the premier exploration vehicle for the Lundin Group. I wish to establish a clear model for the market that this is the vehicle for top quality exploration projects for the Lundin Group with no limits on geography or commodity. Projects accumulated may be sold, joint-ventured, developed ourselves - whatever makes the best commercial sense. We have a lot of flexibility. I very much look forward to leading this exciting new venture."
